    Central Market Cooking Classes

    Check out the CM Cooking School for a full slate of classes covering everything from savories to sweets, from paella to pork to pomegranate au gratin. And, word to the wise, longtime (and way popular) instructor Cindy "Knife Skills" Haenel will be retiring in January – as we report in full right here – so now is the time to schedule a class and glean some sharp acumen from this hometown guru of gastronomy.

    Gibson Street Bar Gets Jolly With It

    And now that rockin' Gibson on South Lamar joins in with the jiggery jingles, featuring over-the-top holiday decor (a totally Instagrammable sleigh, FFS) and a slate of seasonal libations. (We're partial to the so-called Rum-Pa-Pa-Pum, because a mix of Sailor Jerry's, cinnamon-brown-sugar butter, clove, and honey is, woooo, powerfully delicious.) Bonus: live music from the Misfit Toys on Wednesday nights.

    La Volpe New Year's Eve

    We've been smitten with this foxy place since an opening-day server whispered "white truffle lasagne with porcini mushrooms" to us. As 2018 slouches toward 2019 this night, La Volpe's offering a four-course dinner featuring choices of Gulf oyster casino, Caprese salad, mushroom bruschetta, stuffed veal chop, grilled swordfish, filet mignon, and more. But which of the two desserts to choose? Hint: The one made with dark chocolate mocha, espresso espuma, caramelized orange sauce, orange slices, and candied orange peels.

    Nickel City: Sippin' Santa

    Wait, Nickel City has done what? Turned itself into a sort of tiki-powered Polynesian holiday wonderland? Yes, until the year's end – with a raft of new themed cocktails among the classic oceanic gewgaws. (Kris Kringle Colada, anyone? How about a Rudolph Shoots the Curl?) And they'll be hosting a luau party every Saturday in December. Bonus: 10% of all sales go to Action Against Hunger.

    TRACE: Devour: New Year’s Eve Dinner

Dinner will be served reception-style and includes champagne, of course, with beats from DJ Moya to put some 2019 in your ears.
    Mon., Dec. 31, 6pm-2am. $75.
